EVENT DESCRIPTION

Chess960, also known as Fischer random chess is a variation invented by the 11th World Chess Champion, Bobby Fischer.

The rules of this variant are exactly the same as the game of chess, except for one – the starting position of the pieces is completely randomized. The result is that there are 960 possible unique starting positions, hence the name Chess960.

Challenge yourself to the potential chaos, and forget all the opening theory that you have studied on this day!
